County OKs Blue Point Laundry Site Remediation Funds

Cleanup at Park Street parcel will begin later this year.

The Suffolk County Legislature has approved funding the clean-up of the former Blue Point laundry site on Park Street, off Blue Point Avenue, with remediation efforts slated to begin later this year.

According to a press statement issued by Legislator Rob Calarco, who sponsored the funding bill, the resolution was unanimously approved at last week's legislature meeting.

“Getting this site cleaned up so that we can move forward is a high priority on my agenda and the county knows it. I am and will be pushing hard to see that it happens," said Calarco, in the statement.

"As anxious as everyone is to move forward with redevelopment of the site, at this point the first order of business is to remediate the site. In the meantime, I will be working with the community as discussions for the future use of the property continue,” he added.

The Blue Point Community Civic has been actively working with lawmakers to have the site cleaned up and most recently there has been an effort to have the site developed into a community skate board park. That effort was sparked by the death of Billy Schettino, a Blue Point teen who often skated at the abandoned lot.

The cleanup funds are in the capital budget designated for the Suffolk County Brownfields Program and amounts to $502,000 in Suffolk County Serial Bonds, according to the press statement.

Happy for the family of Billy Schettino, but they deserve so much more ( like answers). I hope it is followed through with by the legislators.
